Teaching children how to respond to real life emergencies can be difficult without exposing them to more information than you want them to have at such a tender age: how do you educate them about how to react to a fire or other emergency situation without exposing them to potentially adult information? Luckily Playmobil has the answer – with its combination of real life and fantasy situation play pieces.
Playmobil has ambulance, hospital, police station and street scenarios to choose from and you can mix and match to ensure you create the situation you want to teach your kids about. Simply give them a child-shaped Playmobil piece to use as themselves and have ‘them’ come across your situation: from here you can ask, or teach, them what they should do. For example, if you have set up a fire situation, either in the house or on the street, you can teach them the appropriate responses, having their Playmobil character find an adult, call 911 and remove themselves from the area.
This isn’t just a useful tool for addressing dangerous situations, it can also be fun and educational to enact everyday scenarios with your children. If your child gets bored and stops paying attention when you try to teach them about food shopping while you’re at the store, for example, you can use the Playmobil pieces to build a store and have their play piece go shopping.
Playmobil is a cheap and easy tool for teaching your children how to respond to all sorts of real-life situations without exposing them to adult, or scary, situations and it’s also great fun for both you and your little one.
